Hello current and aspiring fiction writers -- Cast of Wonders is open for general submissions through November 30!  We are a young adult short fiction market, open to stories up to 6,000 words in length.

We’re dedicated to publishing fiction that reflects the entire spectrum of the human experience. We acknowledge the realities of unconscious bias and make our best effort to account for it during our review process. . Our full statement in support of lowering publishing’s barriers to entry for authors from historically underrepresented backgrounds is on our guidelines page.  You can find that page here

To quote part of our explanation of What We're Looking For:

"Stories that evoke a sense of wonder, have deep emotional resonance, and have something unreal about them. We aim for a 12-17 age range: that means sophisticated, non-condescending stories with wide appeal, and without gratuitous or explicit sex, violence or pervasive obscene language."

It's also important to keep in mind that our stories are presented in audio format.  This means that some stories that would work well on the page, because of unusual settings or creative formatting, aren't as appropriate for us.  But don't self-reject!  If you think you have a good story, send it to us. 

Please read all of the guidelines!  Then, if you're ready to send us your story, you can find the link to the submissions page at the bottom of the guidelines page, under the heading "How to Submit."

We're looking forward to reading your work!
